What does it mean to be a geek? The word geek is a slang originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people. Today a geek is one who is an expert, enthusiast, or a person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit. A geek is a person completely obsessed with one or more subjects and can speak fluently on it for hours.
This holiday reminds all of us that we should be proud of the things that define us and the things that we are passionate about. “Dungeon games, comic books, computers, etc.” we should have no shame about anything we are into.
Geekdom brings people together, inspires others, and helps to build a strong sense of community. Members are in touch with their imagination. Some of the most amazing costuming and tech gadgets have been put together by people inspired by the shows, stories, and games that they love.
What are you passionate about? How will you celebrate Embrace Your Geekness Day? I would say all of us have a passion for something! Get out into the world and wear your favorite shows t-shirt, talk to your friends about the stuff you love, maybe even try an arts project. Embrace Your Geekness Day reminds us that we’re not alone and the world is a better place because of our imagination, creativity, and pride.
